One Village Walk at San Quentin Prison

  • San Quentin State Prison San Rafael, California (map)

Dear Ones,

On May 1, 2016 I am going to do something very special...I am going to participate in a Peace Walk at San Quentin Prison. This fundraiser walk-a-thon donates the proceeds to youth that attend the California Youth Summit in June.

I am reaching out to the extended universal community, to ask if you will assist me in raising scholarship money for the kids that go to this powerful summit. Young adults and teens from all over the world gather to develop their personal sense of self...to become Leaders of Peace. Many kids come from war torn countries, where peace is nowhere in sight.

In order to do this beautiful walk at San Quentin, we are asked to raise $400 to walk, however I would like to raise over $1,500.

Here is the link with more information....any amount is accepted. From your heart to mine :)

On this day, I will be walking in honor of my friend, Roque Palomino. For 7 years, he was our Field Trip Farmer from the El Cerrito Farmer's Market at my summer camp. The kids loved "Rocky" and Rocky loved the kids.

On October of 2014, he sustained a serious head injury. In January 2015, Rocky had a surgical procedure to help with the brain trauma and sadly with a hard turn of events, committed a violent crime in July 2015 and is currently incarcerated in Modesto, in pre-trial status. I will carry Roque and his family in my heart the day of the Village Peace Walk. Please assist me in any way.

Thank you!!

In Loving Service,

Jnana
